The RTC, the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Reno/Sparks urbanized area, pursuant to federal law (23 USC 134), hereby provides the citizens of this metropolitan area an opportunity to review and comment on the Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2020-2024 Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP). The RTIP was developed in accordance with the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act. This update is advancing several projects that were in the design phase forward to the construction phase.

The FFY 2020-2024 RTIP is a five-year program of street and highway, transit, bicycle and pedestrian projects for Washoe County. The RTIP represents a prioritized program directed at meeting Washoe County’s growing transportation needs, while improving the region’s safety, air quality, transportation efficiency, and mobility. The RTIP is required by federal regulation and serves as a useful tool in planning and programming transportation system improvements.

A copy of the FFY 2020-2024 RTIP is available for viewing and comment during regular business hours at the RTC Planning Offices at 1105 Terminal Way, Suite 211, Reno and on the RTC website for a 21-day period starting on August 30, 2019, and ending on September 19, 2019. A public hearing (to be noticed separately) will be held by the RTC Board following the public comment period. Citizen comments will be forwarded to the RTC Board. This document is subject to change through the public comment period. Any changes will be discussed in the public hearing before the RTC Board and will be made available for public review at the above locations.
